Ms Keeble: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what estimate his Department has made of the cost to the Exchequer of (a) withdrawing the tax exemption for employer supported childcare, (b) the extension of the free childcare entitlement for two-year olds and (c) claims for the childcare element of working tax credit in the next 12 months; 
(2) what estimate his Department has made of the number of employers which will close their childcare vouchers scheme as a result of the removal of the tax exemption for employer-supported childcare. 
Mr. Lancaster: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the likely effects of proposals to end tax relief on employer-supported childcare vouchers on the ability of families on average incomes to afford childcare. 
The reforms to tax relief for childcare vouchers will allow the Government to move towards the long-term ambition set out by the Prime Minister to extend the offer of free part time nursery places for all two-year-olds whose parents want them. As set out in Table B4 on page 173 of the 2009 Pre-Budget Report this approach will be revenue neutral.
Jim Cousins: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what square footage of office space his Department and its agencies rent; and in respect of what proportion of such space rental is calculated on an index-linked basis.
